DIY Impeachment

"This American government—what is it but a tradition, though a recent one, endeavoring to transmit itself unimpaired to posterity, but each instant losing some of its integrity?" Henry David Thoreau, "Civil Disobedience."

I saw this link on Generik's blog. This is a site dedicated to a Do It Yourself Impeachement process. If you gohere you will find a downloadable PDF form to fill out and send in to your Representative.

"I became convinced that noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good. No other person has been more eloquent and passionate in getting this idea across than Henry David Thoreau. As a result of his writings and personal witness, we are the heirs of a legacy of creative protest." - Martin Luther King, Jr, Autobiography, Chapter 2.

Civil disobedience has a long history, and I contend that the time is urgently upon us to take that route again. We need focused protest, and we need to bring about the impeachment of this President and Vice-President for abuses too numerous to mention here.
